NFL mock draft 2013: Lions expected to take a cornerback

Kevin C. Cox

The Detroit Lions could likely draft a cornerback with their first round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, according to one mock.

The Detroit Lions are set to pick in the top five of the 2013 NFL Draft, provided everything remains the same with the rest of the league. Of course, it's not likely to, but at 4-10 and tied for the second-worst record in the league, the Lions have a good shot at landing one of college football's hottest prospects come draft day.

Currently slotted at No. 5, behind the Philadelphia Eagles, Oakland Raiders, Jacksonville Jaguars and Kansas City Chiefs, the Lions have plenty of options.

With two weeks to go in the regular season, it's time to talk mock drafts. Russ Lande of National Football Post has been plugging away at it for awhile now, and released his latest mock on Tuesday. He has the Lions taking Dee Milliner, a cornerback out of Alabama, with the No. 5 pick.

Lande cites Milliner's athleticism and ball skills as the primary reason he could help the Lions. Detroit has had some serious issues with their secondary over the last couple seasons, so it appears to be a good pick.
